DeeDee Jonrowe and Linwood Fielder, both of Willow, scratched this morning at the Rohn checkpoint at 6:00 a.m. and 6:21 a.m., respectively, both citing problems in Dalzell Gorge.

Chugiak’s Jim Lanier scratched in Rainy Pass due to a leg injury.

Cindy Gallea, of Wycoff, Minnesota, scratched in Skwentna on Monday, because of illness.

The top-11 mushers have all made it into Nikolai, led by Big Lake’s Martin Buser.

The racers’ next stop is McGrath.
